Theo at The Temporium

The Temporium: there are just two more days to visit our Christmas shop The Temporium, where you can snap up gifts by over 20 designers and brands including this toy cable car from Theo.

The vintage style wind-up cable car is made in the Czech Republic from printed sheet metal and comes with five metres of string to zip along.

It has a mechanical spring engine and a start/stop switch.

Theo also presents textiles from Donna Wilson, plant pots by Nick Fraser (see our earlier story), Clocks by David Weatherhead and more.

Here are some more details from Theo:

Hello, I’m Theo. Nice to meet you!

Although it looks like I’m the new kid on the block, I mean in certain ways I am, I’ve been doing this for quite a while now.

Theo at The Temporium

I am a bit like the little brother/alter ego of Thorsten van Elten (in fact Theo is Thorsten’s middle name).

Theo at The Temporium

Since Thorsten closed his actual brick and mortar shop back in 2008, his online shop stayed on. Unfortunately it got a little bit neglected as Thorsten was very busy working on his production & distribution side with his products being sold in many fantastic shops all around the world.

Theo at The Temporium

Theo has most definitely got his own identity and ideas! Some you can see already, some are still to come.
